While technically considered an occupant, pets are not a landlord’s best friend. Even if they are allowed on the property, the landlord should state exactly which types are allowed so that an “organic” tenant doesn’t have farm animals on the premises. Furthermore, it’s recommended that the landlord place a maximum weight the animal may be for liability (dangerous dogs tend to be larger) and damage to the premises.

This is one of the most important reasons to read your lease in detail before you sign it! Take it home if you need to, and ask all the questions you need to clarify any terms in it that you're not sure about. You may want to beware of any landlord that is trying to rush you into signing or fails to respond to your concerns – if the landlord behaves this way before you've even moved in, imagine what it would be like if you were already moved in and needed repairs done, for example.
The lease should be reviewed for early termination clauses that allow for it to be broken with no penalty. If no clauses are found, the tenant may attempt to have legal clauses added to allow for the lease to be broken without penalty. Clauses are provided at the discretion of the landlord, or property management company if acting on the behalf of the best interest of the landlord. Dependent on the reasons for the tenant to break the lease, some states provide options that would not hold the tenant liable even when not stated in the Standard Residential Lease Agreement.

The chances of a landlord pursuing the matter often depends on the size of the property management company. A landlord with one duplex and a day job might not want to endure the hassle and costs of a day off work as well as the lawyer/paralegal fees. On the other hand, if you have a professional landlord who owns and manages thousands of units, Aaron says they’ve likely got someone dedicated to going after tenants five days a week. “Yours is just another file in their caseload.”
Because this is a complicated situation, you may wish to contact a qualified lawyer in your jurisdiction, especially if large sums of money are involved. You should inform your landlord immediately of the situation, so it cannot later be claimed that the landlord suffered losses as a result of not knowing that you were not going to move in. You may also wish to contact your local Residential Tenancies Board or government agency who oversees landlord/tenant disputes to find out the extent of your liability, which may or may not be limited by statute.

20.1 The fact that we do not insist on the full implementation of any of your obligations hereunder or that we do not exercise any of the rights that the presents gives us, should not be construed as a waiver for future to request your that you comply with your obligations.

4. Is the apartment in bad shape? A tenant may be able to get out of a lease if the apartment is in a sub-standard state and repeated attempts to have repairs made have been ignored. Sub-standard could mean poor maintenance of the building and/or unit, public health concerns like water and mould, or harassment of a tenant by a landlord. In this case, as long as you have proof, the tenant board can order an end to the tenancy because “the landlord has not met their obligations.”

Typically, renting a room or a basement suite means you are sharing an accommodation with the landlord. A basement suite is a self-contained dwelling unit complete with its own kitchen, bathroom, and living area. Most tenants of a basement suite use a separate entrance to enter the house than the rest of the occupants. If you rent a room, you will likely share either the kitchen or bathroom with the landlord or other tenants.
